More Germans than Chinese Tourists in Koh Samui

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

More Germans than Chinese Tourists in Koh Samui

Koh Samui: German visitors still outdoing Chinese on holiday island, Brits in 5th
Siam Rath reported that tourism in the south of Thailand was not meeting expectations of growth.

Targets of 10% that were usually seen each year were falling well short at about 2-3%.

Amid the relative gloom of tourism and sports minister Pipat Ratchakitprakran’s visit came news about who is visiting Koh Samui the most.
Thais remain tops at about 1.7 million up to October this year.

But figures were given for foreign visitors as follows:

1. Germans 392,095

2. Chinese 334,099

3. Eastern Europeans 245,987

4. Australians 197,772

5. British 155,359.

These were the top five apart from Thais.
